I was excited to try the classic jocks by Bike. I have very fond memories of the jocks from my younger days. At the same time, this jock isn’t’ classic #10. It’s still a classic and produced after the initial #10 jock was retired. When I slid it on, there was one thing that caught my attention. The pouch didn’t fit snug as I usually liked, and I hoped this pair would live up to the memories I had. There was only one way to see, and that was to wear it for the day.
Since I was wearing a jock, I decided to wear this on an active day. It was a lot of running around and lifting this day. As I got busy throughout my day, I forgot I was wearing a jock. That means I never noticed the leg straps or the pouch. Much to my worry, the pouch held up well. I guess I like a wider top to the pouch. I still would love it to be a bit wider at the top; that is my only complaint about this pair. As I moved through the day, everything stayed in place, and the legs didn’t roll, waistband bunch, or the pouch lost support.
The Construction on both jocks I have reviewed for BIKE has been pretty good. There have been no issues with fabric or Construction. I judge the jock by the leg straps. I have had jocks in the past rip the leg straps. After wearing, I always inspected, and I didn’t see any loose threads or stitching. Also, I haven’t heard anyone out there complain about the jocks either. This means they are doing a pretty good job at making these astounding jocks.
Sizing hasn’t been an issue with me. I am an XL and size 42 right now. The XL wasn’t binding or constricting in the waistband. When I used to wear jocks to college, they would be so tight that They would drive me crazy halfway through the day. Running around and doing my job didn’t bind me and caused any restrictive motions when I was running around and doing my job. I’m kind of impressed by it.
If you are looking for a classic jock that meets form and functions, the Classic Jockstrap. The new Bike isn’t quite like the old Bike, but it’s doing a great job recreating the classics. I’m happy because they are making the classics but wearable and functional for sports and every day.
